Big Ten course
Played the green tees. Great setup. Challenging course. Big greens with subtle breaks
Good course in general but amazing for the price
The west course is already a beautifully tree-lined course, with relatively skinny fairways. If you can play here for $30-40, then you’re getting a Timber Ridge or Hawk Hallow quality course for $20-30 cheaper. Great blend of looks, value, and difficulty.
The course is in great shape the greens are big soft and fast. We played in 3hrs40mins. We checked in at the grill window which was fine with us . No contact we loved seeing the pieces of swim noodles in the cup we tip our hats to them for that. This tells us that they care about the safety of their customers. Good job MSU we will be back.
Not up to the standards that I'm accustom to when . I understand that are short staffed right now.
Tee boxes were nicely maintained, crisp grass but not too dry or too moist. The fairways were cut perfectly as well as the greens. The greens were perfect to where the roll wouldn’t “die” after 6 inches and allows me to put true! Even with Social distancing guidelines in play, Forest Akers West still went out of their ways to allow us to have a great round.
Top Shelf Course
Fairways were in immaculate conditions. greens were relatively quick but very well maintained. The weather was cool and windy, however if you hit fairways you could score on the par 5's. I look forward to coming back out to Akers West next Spring.
Such great conditions! Amazing fast true greensn
It was cold and breezy, a day after some rain. The course had drained completely and the greens were fantastic. They held nicely and rolled fast and true.
Greens were hard like asphalt. Roll on greens was like putting on gravel. One person working in clubhouse waited 12 minutes to be greeted and checked in. Snack shop was closed and no refreshments on course. I expected more, not the quality course it once was
Hi, thank you for reviewing Forest Akers West. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are glad to see you have enjoyed the course in the past and we are rapidly working to return it to those conditions. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing, we hope to see you again soon.
Last played this course 23 years ago and the course has only improved with age. Rerouted the holes, added a new clubhouse (which is great for Spartan apparel and accessories) and condition of course is outstanding. Pace of play was acceptable given all the groups playing on course. I will not wait so long to return to my alma mater ‘s outstanding golf course
